BEAR GARDEN – “HELIUM

The Swedish saxophonist has created a massive composition centered on a series of forlorn lines that break through a cacophony of percussion and piano like streaks of light through a heavy cloud cover. These lines, originally unadorned, are joined and doubled until they become earth-quaking statements of purpose. As the song swells quick-run arpeggios are looped over and over until the song is taken to its breaking point. An absolutely powerful track from this young composer.
